Arvidsson Recalled by Predators
Milwaukee, WI-- Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/General Manager David Poile announced today that the club has recalled forward Viktor Arvidsson from Milwaukee (AHL).
Arvidsson has five points (3g-2a) in 24 games for the Predators in 2015-16 after going scoreless in his first six career NHL contests a season ago. The 5-foot-9, 180-pound native of Skelleftea, Sweden’s first career goal was the game winner in Nashville’s season-opening victory over Carolina on Oct. 8, and he recorded back-to-back tallies on Dec. 5 at Detroit and Dec. 7 at Boston, with the latter also being a game-winning goal. Nashville's fifth choice, 112th overall (fourth round), in the 2014 Entry Draft, Arvidsson has 18 points (8g-10a) in 17 games with the Admirals this season, with six of those markers coming on the power play. He was named to the 2015 AHL All-Rookie Team in his first season in North America after ranking third among league rookies and first on the Admirals in points (22g-33a-55pts).
The Admirals are currently off for the AHL All-Star break before make their lone trip of the season to California for a games against Bakersfield next Friday and San Diego on Saturday.
